This is Part I of a 2-part series on dating younger women. In Part I, we'll be focused on social factors that have changed and why there's so much pushback against older men dating younger women in the West. Part II will be our "how-to" - that is, how to date younger women as an older (or younger) man.
There's something of a stigma in the West right now against older men and younger women (while younger men and older women is often considered right as rain - and maybe even ideal!)... younger man / older woman couplings, you'll frequently be told, are a Bad Thing.
But travel the rest of the world, and this stigma is largely nonexistent.
Throughout history, it's been common for older men to select younger women as their brides, across cultures, nearly universally.
It would appear we live in a strange and rather unusual period in history, where sexual norms have been turned upside down and positioned on their heads.
But look a little closer, and you'll see that even in the West - even in the United States, bastion of feminist sentiment right now - steer clear of unattractive women with bones to pick, and you'll quickly find that - at least among pretty younger women - this "stigma" against older men dating younger women is primarily the figment of a small group of the media's imagination.
Let's sweep aside the deliberate confusion of the rabble-rousers and have look at what actually goes on out there in the real world of older men and the younger women they date.
